Silverware Tree

A silverware tree seems perfect for the dining room.  
Using collected  vintage pieces of silver plate,




My gravy ladle,


And a small tree in an urn,



I tied the silver pieces on with strands of jute.



It is on an antique Italian pedestal games table that is in the bay window of the dining room.  


Added to the vignette,  is a vintage tea set, vintage books and
a mercury glass bird  that  momentarily flew in from 
another  room to see what was going on.

Remember the huge Bloggers Block Party event the week of December 5-10.  I will be hosting the Christmas Tree Party!!

Until next time,  Honey

  22. Simply darling! I did a silverware tree about 7 years ago except I also attached bowls, silver cups, etc. THEN I put hershey kisses into the things that would hold them. I also had silver bowls under the tree filled with the candy. Sooo, when I saw this I just HAD to follow such a kindred spirit.
    Blessings, Haven
